International Preparedness

Two women in Bangladesh planning disaster response work in their community

Our international grantmaking supports communities as they develop a culture of preparedness to reduce disaster vulnerability, foster self-reliance, and address disaster costs and impacts. This focus will reduce human loss and suffering, decrease economic loss, and enable faster recovery after a natural disaster.

We support work in communities and geographic areas that are impacted by recurring low-attention natural disasters.
